Nearly over a month ago (20/1/18) I suffered terrible HIP PAIN! I could not sit down, bend my leg to get dressed, let alone put my shoes on. I was concerned, because my brother-in-laws wedding was less than a month away, and I could not even bend to get in the car. Standing on my leg was pure agony. And going to the bathroom was somewhat of a challenge. My partner got very upset, thinking I would need a Hip Replacement, Stairlift and Zimmer Frame. He wanted me to go to the doctors, I told him ... "Give me a week, if I cannot heal myself, I will see a GP!"
Note. Nearly all my family have had hip operations. Bad bones. Terrible arthritis, osteoporosis etc. And all lived on the Western Diet. I know you are going to say, but hey you changed to the Plant Based Diet three years ago. Yes, this is true, but I have been on a bad diet for years. And I have been yo-yoing with the diet. I have not had meat for three years, not so good with the junk food, sweet tooth! And I slip off the wagon occasionally when it comes to my cheese fetish. Especially, over Christmas, Birthdays and special occasions.
The one thing I did not realise at the time, was how important wild foods are for my diet. During Spring and Summer months I forage in the garden for Stinging Nettles, Plantain, and Japanese Knotweed. And I create drinks with these herbs. Cold and hot teas. Smoothies etc.
Anyway, this Christmas my partner gave me a couple of Nicholas Culpeper books. I looked through the Complete Herbal for PLANTAIN. I needed a herb I could use that was in my backyard. And low and behold the book read:
Plantain is good if applied to bones out of joint, to hinder inflammations, swellings, and pains that presently rise there-upon. Plantains are good wound herbs to heal fresh or old wounds, or sores, either inward, or outward!
On the Saturday, my daughter gave me a chocolate. The strange thing is, an hour later, I started to get terrible pains in my HIP, and had to lay down. Sunday in awful pain. The only way to get my welly boots on was to kick my leg backwards and put them on that way. Quite a laughable sight.
Monday, I hobbled down the back garden and had to bend my leg backwards to get down to collect the Plantain herbs. I rinsed them a couple of times in distilled water. And blended them with a mason jar full of cold distilled water. Sieved off the pulp, and placed it in the fridge. I rubbed the pulp on my hip. And it really helped, very soothing. Next I poured the PLANTAIN WATER through a tea strainer into a tea cup. I drank four cups of this a day. And just kept rubbing the plantain pulp on my sore hip. You can water it down with distilled water to drink, if you find the taste too green for your liking. The green taste did not bother me at the time, I was just grateful that it worked.
Why did I not do this sooner? Saturday I was in terrible pain, by Wednesday, I could actually sit down. The pain was easing off. I was over joyed, especially as my partner goes to the doctor for everything. I had faith that my body could heal itself thanks to Google, You Tube, Raw/Wild food experts and Dr. Michael Greger and Herbalist ... Nicholas Culpeper.
Come Friday, I had no pain at all! So in less than a week, I managed to cure myself. I had faith, why? Because if I can cure my Asthma by changing the way I eat, then anything is possible! I also know of three people that cured Cancer with plants. From keeping a diary, I know my Asthma is triggered by the chemicals in foods. And that plants actually do heal the body.
This lady had terrible HIP PAIN, and changed to a Plant Based Diet. Now cured! I wonder if she eats Wild Herbs?
WHAT IS PLANTAIN?
Susan Weed mentions how one American Doctor used Plantain in her hospital to heal patients after an operation.
I would like to see Dr. Michael Greger promote Wild Herbs. Especially, Japanese Knotweed, which has a bad name. I just do not get it. This plant is sold for hundred of thousands of pounds for medicine ... Trans Resveratrol. Yet we are told by the press and powers that be ... it is EVIL.
Eating a large serving of shop broccoli every day was not enough! Wild herbs have more nutrition than common fruits and vegetables:
JAPANESE KNOTWEED ... OSTEOPOROSIS TEST ON RATS
- Drugs used for osteoporosis Drugs used for osteoporosis: In an ovariectomized rat model of bone loss, rats fed oral resveratrol (0.7mg/kg of body weight) from Polygonum cuspidatum had significantly higher bone mineral density and bone calcium content than ovariectomized rats, similar to alendronate sodium treatment (24). Theoretically, concurrent use of Japanese knotweed with drugs used for osteoporosis may have additive effects.
"WE WORK FOR YOU!" ...
This is the Government's moto
If they work for us, then why can we not get a debate on Japanese Knotweed, and why it is sold as medicine and by the cosmetic industry, yet the press and powers that be claim it is the worst plant in the world!
Don't you worry, they have it all figured out. They are now banning the NHS from promoting any herbal remedies.
LOOKS LIKE SOME BRITISH ELITES STILL HATE THE THOUGHT OF ANY HERBAL MEDICINE HELPING PEOPLE CURE ILLNESS. THAT EXPLAINS WHY THERE IS NOT ONE FILM ABOUT HERBALIST HERO ... NICHOLAS CULPEPER!
American and British History tells a different story on how Nicholas Culpeper really died!
CHECK OUT SOME OF MY RESEARCH ON JAPANESE KNOTWEED MEDICAL PATENTS:
I suppose, until working class people help run our Countries, some Elites will keep the lid on SCIENCE, especially Health Science. After all look at how they promoted smoking. Even to kids (Apple Cigarettes)! See Dr. Michael Greger's video, they even promoted Santa Smoking (10:06) and kids cartoons. Forward video to ten minutes and forty three seconds (10:43).
(WOW, THEY HAVE DELETED THE VIDEO, BUT DON'T WORRY, THERE IS A COPY) ... DELETED VIDEO ....
THE DELETED TED TALK BY DR. MICHAEL GREGER IS ON THIS VIDEO:
Dr. Michael Greger TED Talk Review | The Vegan Nutrition Video You Need to See and Share
With some luck the above You Tuber will upload the full video, if this is allowed?
Dr. Greger is always talking about Science being lost down the rabbit hole. Question is, what can we do about it? We need to work together to share information! Keep health diaries etc. And sign petitions!
I would like to thank Google, You Tube, Dr. Michael Greger and the people that have kept Herbalist ... Nicholas Culpeper books alive. Without this information, people like me would still be suffering from Asthma and having to have hip operations.
Lastly, I have some exciting news. Thanks to my wonderful local Councillor, I may get my ideas heard with regards to Japanese Knotweed. I would like support to set up Cottage Industries to help families earn from home using Japanese Knotweed to make soaps, organic wine, face oil, smoothies, teas etc.
I believe Japanese Knotweed could be used to create green electricity, see blog:
